Our multi-disciplined team are all accomplished designers with the ability to understand and hand draw complex designs, using both traditional and modern mediums. This craft is crucial in the Humphries Weaving studio and is often used to accurately replicate historically documented designs. Our attention to detail and the time we dedicate to this stage is the signature of the work that we produce.
We also work in collaboration with clients to develop contemporary fabrics and interpret their own artwork or ideas into a workable textile. We can translate from sketches, fabric references, inspiration boards, digital images or allow clients to draw inspiration from our own extensive archive. We then convert these initial ideas into our state of the art Computer Aided Design System (CAD) for further development. This method is more timely and efficient than traditional Jacquard card cutting technology, allowing immediate changes in design, scale and construction to meet with the clients wishes.
Our team are experienced in working with the most discerning of customers, from other trained designers and practitioners, to those with no background or formal training who simply want to bring their idea to life.
